  1. In Outlook, select the message you want to attach, or double-click a message to open.
  2. On the Outlook toolbar, click the Attach to ACT! Contact(s) button.

Note: If the button doesn’t appear, make sure you’ve closed and re-opened Outlook since adding your Act! address book.

The Attach E-Mail to Contacts dialog opens.

  1. Under Select contacts from, select whether you want to choose from all your contact records or from a selected group or company.
  2. In the contact list, select one or more contacts and click the Add button.

The contacts are added to the list on the right. The message will be attached to all the contacts in this list.
